I have been slowing developing a liking to the naked neck "condition"(exspecially on the rooster). I have noticed that in standard size chickens all the naked necks are single combed and colored more or less like the Turken. Are there any rose comb, muffed or crazy colored NN's out there? I would like to see your favorite non turken naked neck!

He has a pea comb, loves to eat, and hates to be picked up and held. He's a bit bigger now, but I don't have a good recent picture.

I thought Turken was just another thing people called Naked Necks? Can someone explain the difference to me?

Hi!
Turkens or Transylvanian Naked Necks are a 'breed' with 'breed standards' (just like with Leghorns or Orpingtons or Rhode Island Reds).

All my Naked Neck crosses started with standard-size buff Turkens (Naked Necks).

The 2 on left and right are first generation Naked Neck x Silkie crosses.



These 2 are (Naked Neck x Silkie) X Ameraucana --- the above hens with Am' roo:





These are Jersey Giant X [(Naked Neck x Silkie) X Ameraucana] --- the above roo with JG hens:









I like Naked Necks A LOT!

Those are great! I love the rose (pea?) comb one and the blue with red back. I look forward to seeing an updated malgache pic too.

Banter, they are very cold and hot tolerant. I loved my naked necks, but I rehomed them to a lovely family. They were getting pecked up by the other chickens.
